Prenatal Stress Keeps Infants, Toddlers up at Night, Study Says

...another piece in the unfolding mystery of just how much the prenatal environment may shape a childs health and development for years to come. The survey-based study, part of the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC), assessed pregnant women living in Avon, England, who were due to gi...

Genomic Analysis Uncovers New Targets for HIV Vaccine

...e variants in key immune system cells appear to be much better at controlling the proliferation of the virus after infection. These gene variants are known as polymorphisms. "These results not only approximately double our understanding of the factors that influence variation amongst individuals in how t...

Scratch no more: Gene for itch sensation discovered

Soils offer new hope as carbon sink

...sil fuels. "So it is not surprising there is so much interest in a technology to create clean energy that also locks up carbon in the soil for the long term and lifts agricultural production," he said. The trials at Wollongbar have focused on the benefits of agrichar to agricultural productivity. ...

Old memory traces in brain may trigger chronic pain

...dicated the animals’ emotional suffering decreased much more than their physical pain. While the physical pain appeared to be reduced 30 percent – their emotional suffering completely disappeared. Rat are nocturnal animals that prefer to be in the dark and are averse to bright light. Researchers plac...

Modeling the restless brain

...ond fluctuations of activity emerge naturally from much faster, chaotic neural interactions that typically last only a few milliseconds. "Our model suggests that the cortical resting state is not time-invariant, but instead contains rich and interrelated temporal structure at multiple time scales that...

How sneaky HIV escapes cells

...Viruses like HIV use pathways we barely recognize, much less understand,” Gould says. “Our paper highlights the importance of studying their basic biochemistry and cell biology, which can yield a better understanding of normal human biology as well as identify new avenues in the fight against human diseas...

Snoring in children might be an allergic type disease

... obesity. But in children it seems that snoring is much more closely related allergy and inflammation”. “Our data hopefully contribute to a clinician’s ability to effectively spot snoring in pre-school children in order to identify potentially more serious obstructive sleep apnoea.” ...

A new plant-bacterial symbiotic mechanism promising for crop applications

... The plant thus acquires the possibility of fixing much higher quantities of nitrogen than those usually measured in leguminous plants which have nodules only on their roots. The researchers sequenced (3) the genes of two bacterial strains of Bradyrhizobium, ORS278 and BTAi1, in order to find out thei...

Dirty snow may warm Arctic as much as greenhouse gases

...auses temperatures in the polar regions to rise as much as 3 degrees Celsius during some seasons, the scientists say. “Once the snow is gone, the soot that caused the snow to melt continues to have an effect because the ground surface is darker and retains more heat,” Zender said. Dirty snow is prev...

Dual-imaging technique useful before -- and during -- brain surgery

'Lucky 13' as new gene discovery offers further hope for childhood blindness

...der this a 'lucky thirteenth' as we are building a much clearer picture of what causes the disorder." Professor Inglehearn believes that lebercilin may be involved in moving proteins from the inner to outer segments of photoreceptors in the retina. Protein transport is essential within retinal photorec...
